Australia vs India, Ist Test, Day 4: As it happened: Indian bowlers call shots

Indian bowlers kept a tight leash on Australia

Adelaide, December 9: India extended their domination over Australia during the fourth day's play of the first Test at the Adelaide Oval here on Sunday (December 9).

This Australia vs India Test has been an intense one so far and the visitors had inched ahead on Saturday (December 8) showing grit and gumption first through ball and then with the bat. India closed Day 3 at 151 for three for an overall lead of 166 and they would like to bat the Aussies out of this game. India ended their second innings at 307 setting Australia a target of 322. At close, Australia were 104/4 -- needing 219 runs more to win and India six wickets.
